Focus groups gave their verdict and chose songs for Dead Smiling Pirates' new album. The band used focus groups to determine the quality of the tracks for their new album 'Harvest On A Hype'. Focus groups identified potential singles and album tracks and two tracks that were not good enough.
The result was that the band scrapped two of the original 13 tracks on the album. Focus groups felt that these songs were not good enough to be released. The album will only contain 11 tracks when it's released on February 27th 2012.
Lead singer Kim Burmeister said: “It was obviously hard to know that there were two tracks that were not good enough. But we removed these songs from the album. After all, we must admit that the album actually has improved. It's been a very rewarding process, and it is certainly something we would do again”.
Dead Smiling Pirates comes from Copenhagen, Denmark, and the Danish music pirates set sail on the musical oceans in 2006. The trio plays alternative rock with attitude and they released their debut album in 2007. Dead Smiling Pirates is inspired Paramore, Linkin Park and Foo Fighters etc. The band consists of Kim Burmeister (vocal and guitar), Erik Aaberg (drums) and Rasmus Christensen (bass).
